You have some things working for you as well as some things against. The good news first: Georgia will be an under-represented country and culture in b-school, which still seems to earn some points in the admissions process with US schools. Additionally, you have a great GMAT score. If you truly feel you can get a 740, you should, since the bad news is, your Work experience will be way below average for number of years at top b-schools. Much of what b-schools rely upon is for applicants to come with something substantial to offer from their work experience. They will discount any work you did before you graduated, and you don't have much time under your belt post-UG yet. This is sometimes a reason to send applicants away for another couple of years. If you had 3-5 years of progressively responsible post UG professional WE, I would say you would be in a much stronger position. This is not to say you don't have a chance. With a well positioned story and a good explanation for why you need the MBA now, you could find favor with a school in the top 10, but it will take a solid, mature vision and compelling story. as a younger applicant, you can also get some kudos with good recommendations. So if your boss, for example, were to say you were exceptionally mature or an unusual standout vs. your peers, that could help overcome the shorter stint in the professional world. As for particular schools, this depends on many factors including what you want to do after the MBA. Do you have an HB1 Visa? is your plan to work in the US or to return to Georgia? Oil and gas/energy is actually a good field to apply from since there are fewer with that background. If your post MBA vision is connected to energy, you could look at UT Austin or Rice, since TX is lousy with energy related opportunities. Duke also recently launced and energy focus for their MBA. Hope this helps.
